A Dictionary of Greek and Roman biography and mythology (ed. William Smith), Geo'rgius PERIPATETICUS or Geo'rgius the PERIPATETIC (search)
Geo'rgius PERIPATETICUS or Geo'rgius the PERIPATETIC 41. PERIPATETICUS, or ANEPONYMUS, or GREGORIUS ANEPONYMUS. Works Epitome Philosophiae. Fabricius speaks of two works as having been published by Jo. Voegelinus, 8vo. Augsburg A. D. 1600. One is described as Epitome Organi Aristotelici, Gr. Lat., by Gregorius Aneponymus (i. e. without a surname); the other as Compendium Philosophicae, Gr. Lat., by Georgius Aneponymus. The two are probably one and the same work (comp. Fabr. Bibl. Gr. vol. 220, 494), and may probably be identified with a work noticed by Allatius (Diatrib. de Georg. apud Fabr. Bibl. Gr. vol. xii. p. 120) as extant in MS., and described by him as Georgii Monachi Epitome Philosophiae. Editions Jo. Voegelinus, 8vo. Augsburg A. D. 1600. It appears that a Latin version of the same work by Laurentius Valla was published in 8vo. at Basel, A. D. 1542; in which the original was ascribed to Nicephorus Blemmyda. Further Information Fabric. Bibl. Gr. vol. xi. p. 630.

f this be merely a raid, it is an extraordinary one, and I feel some anxiety to learn the conclusion of it. It is hard to suppose a small force of the enemy would evince such temerity. But if it be supported by an army, and the position maintained, Vicksburg is doomed. We shall get no more sugar from Louisiana. April 28 The enemy's raid in Mississippi seems to have terminated at Enterprise, where we collected a force and offered battle, but the invaders retreated. It is said they had 1600 cavalry and 5 guns, and the impression prevails that but few of them will ever return. It is said they sent back a detachment of 200 men some days ago with their booty, watches, spoons, jewelry, etc. rifled from the habitations of the non-combating people. ! saw Brig.-Gen. Chilton to day, Chief of Gen. Lee's Staff. He says, when the time comes, Gen. Lee will do us all justice. I asked him if Richmond were safe, and he responded in the affirmative.

ed by many people, while some of our officers shake their heads and say he is fighting with the halter around his neck, and that if he were not to fight and hold out to the last, his own men would hang him. Notwithstanding the immense amount of goods brought in daily, the prices keep high. June 24 We have nothing additional from Vicksburg or from the Potomac, but there is a rumor of fighting near Leesburg. The first installment of Winchester prisoners reached the city yesterday, 1600 in number, and there are over 4000 more on the way. So much for Milroy's 2000 or 30001 To-day the President desired the Secretary of War to send him all the correspondence with Gen. Johnston, as he intends to write him a confidential letter touching reinforcements, and he wishes to inform him of the military situation of affairs everywhere. This afternoon some excitement prevails in the city, caused by a notification of the Governor placarded at the corner of the streets, calling on t

nful meditations during a season of calamity. September 23 We have nothing additional up to three P. M. to-day; but there is an untraceable rumor on the street of some undefinable disaster somewhere, and perhaps it is the invention of the enemy. We still pause for the sequel of the battle; for Rosecrans has fallen back toga strong position; and at this distance we know not whether it be practicable to flank him or to cut his communications. It is said Gen. Breckinridge commanded only 1600 men, losing 1300 of them! Gen. Cooper and the Secretary of War have not been permitted to fill up his division; the first probably having no desire to replenish the dilapidated command of an aspiring political general. A Mr. G. Preston Williams, of Eden, Chatham County, Ga., writes to the President, Sept. 7th, 1863, saying he has lost three sons in the war, freely given for independence; His fourth son is at home on furlough, but he shall not return unless the President gives up his obsti

dent, by the President to Gen. B. (who is a native of North Carolina), and, seeing what was desired, Gen. B. recommended that the conscription be proceeded with. This may cause Gov. V. to be defeated at the election, and Gen. B. will be roundly abused. He will be unpopular still. April 22 A bright day and warmer. Cherry-trees in blossom. We have the following war news: Plymouth, N. C., April 20th. To Gen. Bragg. I have stormed and captured this place, capturing 1 brigadier, 1600 men, stores, and 25 pieces of artillery. R. F. Hoke, Brig.-General. The President has changed his mind since the reception of the news from North Carolina, and has determined that all the government shall not leave Richmond until further orders. All that can be spared will go, however, at once. The War and Navy Departments will remain for the present. The news is said to have had a wonderful effect on the President's mind; and he hopes we may derive considerable supplies from Eastern

en. Fitz Lee has again been made prisoner, and that another raiding party is threatening the Danville Road, the canal, etc. There is no foundation for any of them, so far as I can learn. June 23 Clear and warm. The news of the capture of 1600 Federals, 4 guns, etc., yesterday at Petersburg, has put the people here in better humor, which has been bad enough, made so by reported rapes perpetrated by negro soldiers on young ladies in Westmoreland County. There has been talk of vengeance, resentment of his numerous friends, at the same time he is reticent, from patriotic motives, fearing to injure the cause. It is stigmatized as an act of perfidy, that the Federal Government have brought here and caused to be slaughtered, some 1600 out of 1900 volunteers from the District of Columbia, who were to serve only 30 days in defense of the Federal city. At the same time our government is keeping in the service, at hard labor on the fortifications, Custis Lee's brigade of clerks,

rters, army of Northern Virginia, September 19th, 1864. Respectfully forwarded to the Adjutant and InspectorGen-eral for the information of the department. Attention is invited to the activity and skill of Col. Moseby, and-the intelligence and courage of the officers and men of his command, as displayed in this report. With the loss of little more than 20 men, he has killed, wounded, and captured, during the period embraced in this report, about 1200 of the enemy, and taken more than 1600 horses and mules, 230 beef cattle, and 85 wagons and ambulances, without counting many smaller operations. The services rendered by Col. Moseby and his command in watching and reporting the enemy's movements have also been of great value. His operations have been highly creditable to himself and his command. (Signed) R. E. Lee, General. Official: John Blair Hoge, Major and Assistant Adjutant-General.

the Petersburg front. The invitation was promptly accepted, and several hours were spent in visiting the troops, who cheered the President enthusiastically. He was greatly interested in looking at the prisoners who had been captured that morning; and while at Meade's headquarters, about two o'clock, sent a despatch to Stanton, saying: . . I have nothing to add to what General Meade reports, except that I have seen the prisoners myself, and they look like there might be the number he states-1600. The President carried a map with him, which he took out of his pocket and examined several times. He had the exact location of the troops marked on it, and he exhibited a singularly accurate knowledge of the various positions. Upon the return to headquarters at City Point, he sat for a while by the camp-fire; and as the smoke curled about his head during certain shiftings of the wind, and he brushed it away from time to time by waving his right hand in front of his face, he entertaine

nded by Grant and Rosecrans. All that he could do was to send Armstrong with his cavalry into west Tennessee to harass Grant, and bring back such information as he could get. Dwellings in Iuka.

Methodist Church, used as a hospital. 6. General Rosecrans's headquarters. 7. General Grant's headquarters. Taking 1600 men, Armstrong reached Holly Springs on the 26th of August, and having been reinforced there by 1100 men under Jackson, struck for Bolivar, Tennessee. There he encountered and defeated a force under Colonel Leggett, who, in his report of this affair, says that after fighting for seven hours with less than 900 he drove from the field over 6000. Armstrong then crossed the Hatchie and cut the railroad between Bolivar and Jackson. He then turned back to Tupelo. On the way he met a force under

apt. William M. McGregor. Horse Artillery loss: k, 4; w, 6 = 10. The total loss of the Confederate Army, based mainly upon the reports of brigade and division commanders, aggregated 1649 killed, 9106 wounded, and 1708 captured or missing = 12,463. The return of the Army of Northern Virginia for March 31st, 1863 ( Official Records, Vol. XXV., Pt. II., p. 696), shows an effective total of all arms of 57,112. To this number there should be added the net increase during the month of April, a period of rest and recruiting, of perhaps 3000, and say 1500 for the reserve artillery of Jackson's corps, not reported on the return for March. This addition gives a total of 61,612. Then, deducting Hampton's brigade of cavalry, recruiting south of the James River, and numbering, perhaps, 1600, the effective force of Lee's Army on the Rappahannock may be estimated at not less than 60,000, with probably 170 pieces of artillery.
